Content

This Course develops learners’ ability to analyse psychological explanations for individual and social behaviour. Psychology provides learners with opportunities to find out about some of the ways that thoughts and emotions can affect how we feel and behave. Psychological knowledge of individual and social behaviour can support learners in personal and professional relationships, and can enable them to understand some of the factors that influence behaviour. Learning in psychology therefore offers a suitable context for finding out about factors that are important to being a confident individual and a successful learner.
